    My one-word review of Candied Citron: Vomit. It was a very realistic note :-(

  3. Marjorie Rose says:

    I like this one (although sadly, it could describe MANY scents):

    “Karl Lagerfeld for Him: A bland fougère consisting of top notes of ‘blah’, heart notes of ‘yawn’ and an intense blast of ‘meh’ in the base”

    • Robin says:

      That was a great one, I still remember choking on my tea the day they posted it.

    LOL Wonderful reviews.

    I smelled Bonbon for about 3 seconds.
    Sensed tooth enamel melting / a cavity growing.
